The EU-Startups Conference is our annual flagship event where we showcase a selection of Europe's hottest startups and where we come together to learn from some of the most successful European entrepreneurs of our time!
We will have fireside chats with internationally successful founders like Jesper Buch (Just Eat founder / angel investor) and Peter Vesterbacka (Rovio, Angry Birds, Slush, Lightneer), interesting speeches, an "Investors on Stage" session and great networking opportunities.
In addition we'll have a pitch competition with 15 exciting startups from all across Europe. The pitch competition will be judged by a team of well known investors. The winning startup team will receive a prize package worth €17,500.
We expect up to 400 startup founders, tech folks, corporates, business angels, media people and investors from all across Europe. Our affordable ticket prices already include food and drinks during the event.
Long story short: We're looking forward to meet you on April 13 in Berlin!
